have ubuntu 8.04 (of course I should have used Vector) very simple files serving running XFCE. I have two files that are shared, these are accessed by several computers running XP. Problem is one of the files (all of a sudden) will not allow me to write to it from the XP machine.  [sharepoint] is functioning fine but [files] I can still access but I am not able to write to the file.  I have cut and past the smb.conf file below. Can someone tell me what I can do to get the write ability back to it? 

        workgroup = MHGROUP
        server string = VEDA
;   netbios name = VEDA
        security = share

        comment = Collaboration Files
        path = /share/global
        force user = mhgroup
        force group = users
        read only = No
        guest ok = Yes

        comment = IT Backup
        path = /share/files
        force user = mhgroup
        force group = users
        read only = No
        guest ok = Yes

Check the local file permissions for the directory that holds the [files] share.
